|Bob, Dean and myself in the Nitten Field last autumn|

I regret passing on the very sad news that my good friend Bob Rigdon passed away last night. Bob was diagnosed with lung cancer last year, yet despite his worsening health, always managed a smile and a laugh whenever I saw him. He was a true gentleman, modest and polite, but always cheery and a little bit cheeky whenever we were out ringing, no matter how early the hour! Bob loved exploring Gower and had great appreciation and affection for its wildlife and scenery. A devoted family man, our thoughts are with his wife Trish and their family at this very sad time.
